Today's legislation concerns identity documentation. It is now a criminal offence to request, accept or produce any government-issued identity documentation for any purpose other than its designated purpose. Passports are to prove your nationality. Driving licenses are to prove your entitlement to drive. US-style "non-driver IDs" have no purpose, so you might as well throw them away. The government does not issue such documents in order to make it easier for people to check up on each other. If private entities such as airlines find it convenient to require their customers to prove their identities, they will have to bear the costs of issuing documentation themselves.
